Series from Duplass brothers earned critical acclaim but failed to attract broad audience
HBO has canceled “Togetherness” after two seasons, TheWrap has learned.
The series received critical acclaim for its first season and developed a cult following, but it failed to make a significant dent in the ratings like other HBO comedies like “Veep” or “Ballers.”
Season 1 managed to draw only an average of 370,000 viewers per episode and a 0.2 rating in the advertiser coveted adults 18-49 demographic. Season 2, currently in progress, is only averaging 340,000 and a 0.1 rating.
The Season 2 finale on April 10 will now serve as the series finale.
“Although we have decided not to proceed with another season of ‘Togetherness,’ we look forward to continuing our strong creative collaboration with the talented Jay and Mark Duplass,” HBO said in a statement to TheWrap.
Mark Duplass also starred in the series, along with Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet and Zissis. The Duplass brothers also served as executive producer, with Stephanie Langhoff serving as co-executive producer.
